However, he would be happy to start a family someday
The Weeknd – who was previously dating Bella Hadid and has recently been seen with Selena Gomez – is looking forward to having children but is scared of getting married.
The Can’t Feel My Face singer, who is wary of this lifelong commitment, explained to GQ magazine: “I feel like I’m the kind of guy that would have kids before getting married. The first thing would be kids. Marriage is scary to me, man.”
And the star, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, doesn’t consider himself “sexy” and says girls are primarily interested in his talent.
He added: “I don’t think that’s real. Listen, I’m not walkin’ around like f***in’ Idris Elba, know what I mean? …I’m not gonna walk into the club and be like, ‘Oh s**t I’m the sexiest guy in here.’
The reason why they want to f**k with me is because of what I do [in the studio]. So I’d rather just focus on doing that.”
The star also decided to cut off his hair after people were constantly copying his long locks. He now feels much happier blending in with the crowd.
“I couldn’t walk around without seeing the f***in’ Weeknd hair. That’s what I called it. New artists, artists that have been around forever–I’m not going to say any names–but they were f***in’ growing their hair.
I worked really hard on this album. And I felt like I need to relieve a lot of stress. [Cutting off my hair] feels good, ’cause I get to blend in.
If I want to go to a club, I can just go and I’m not there. I can go to a restaurant and I’m not there. I look like everybody else, which is boring, but maybe I just want to look like everybody else for a bit.”
